Valencia Palms Pap Chapter would highly recommend Scott Harris, owner of Pyra Promotions. We used them in December as our T-shirt resource for our community WALKATHON and they were fabulous. They were great to work with throughout the entire project: their design team assisted from start to finish, excellent quality and printing, and final delivery was right on time. We received so many compliments on our group t-shirts. Please contact Brett Seick email@example.com Any questions please feel free to contact me, Joyce Brett, Valencia Palms PAP Chapter President .
Our Valencia Palms PAP Chapter originated sixteen years ago. Sue Levy moved here from a community where she was actively involved in The PAP Corps. She came to us with a personal mission to begin a PAP Chapter at Valencia Palms. Graciously, she invited residents to learn about PAP and the work it does to raise funds for cancer research at the Sylvester Comprehensive Care Center in Miami. Many of the people that attended the meeting had personal reasons for getting involved and understood the importance of raising funds for cancer research. In 2006, Sue Levy, became the first President of the newly formed Valencia Palms PAP Chapter. Amazingly, from a small group of devoted individuals we are now proudly 384 members STRONG and continuing to grow.
Many of our founding members went on to become Chapter Presidents and others took active roles on our Executive Board. Several years ago, our PAP President, moved away during her first term. The VP PAP Presidium was created to keep our PAP Chapter strong. The Presidium worked in unison for about 4 years, made up of our loyal and devoted past presidents: Sue Levy, Eileen Krakowski, Marilyn Oremland, Maxine Levy, Joyce Brett, Linda Levy, Estelle Colen, Lori Schindelman, and Elaine Weisberg. Thank you for all your tireless work in the past and present day.
A special thanks to the new breed of men and women who have decided to step up and take positions on our 2022/23 PAP board.
Thank you to Fran Swirsky, she captured the evening with her great pictures.
We are all looking forward to a successful fundraising year.
Together we will work towards creating a world without cancer.
We would like to thank everyone who supported our Valencia Palms Pap Luncheon and Fashion Show. Those of you who came, those who could not attend but donated, everyone that generously shopped our vendors, and not to forget all that bought the lucky raffle tickets.
We truly appreciate the wonderful and dedicated people that worked so diligently to make “Walk on the Wild Side” a huge success.
We are happy to say this event was successful on so many fronts. It brought us together as a community of friends, neighbors, and relatives to support our common goal to fight for a world without cancer.

The Pap Rap

The PAP CORP at Valencia Palms held its opening fund raiser, “Let Us Entertain You,” on April 6th, to a sold-out audience.
Lindy Spero and Robin Wilk took us down memory lane with their wonderful songs from the late 40’s. What a treat. “Script In Hands” players delighted us with two short comic plays one, a take-off on the “Honeymooners,” with Larry Block, Barbara Korsen and Alan Greenberg who wrote the script. The Communal Dressing Room was performed by Carole Kay Block, Sandy Goren, Barbara Hyman and Maxine Levy, written by Norma Ephron and directed by Barbara Korsen.
Our home- grown comedians, Annette Weber and Joel Litow had us laughing off our seats. They are such clever funny people on and off stage.
The talents of Norma Rogers on Piccolo and Sue Boericke on Piano brought a hush over the of audience with their beautiful rendition of Le Rossognol De L’Opera.
The finale, Michael Lereah on vocals and guitar and Ken Oliver on harmonica accompanied on piano by Roy Rosenfeld, with a spectacular rendition of Billy Joel’s “Piano Man.”
All of this was made possible by the efforts and tireless determination of Norma Rogers assisted by Claire Schubert. Photos were taken by Dennis Paul. Sound Technicians Bev Roberts, Larry Spero and Art Weinberg. An extra treat, take home goody bags, was provided by the hospitality committee Gail Ziv, Ileen Messinger and Rhonda Palant.
The atmosphere was so cheerful; everyone was greeting the neighbors they hadn’t seen in a year or more. It was great. Thank you, Pap!
